Yip Dianavan.
Maybe Plastic tiewraps are used on the hands and duct tape around the ankles in some cases...that's what it would take to get me to singalonga Kumbaya.
I seem to (these days) picture a scene from the film 'Airplane' whenever I see this song mentioned. A scene envolving a Nun singing with Guitar.

Hey if folks like to sing it and it makes them feel good..great.
It just doesn't do it for me however.

Another gem from my Girl Guide Campfire days was a song called Ging Gang Gooly, yes you read this correctly:)
...and it goes like this:

Ging Gang Gooly
Ging Gang Gooly Gooly Gooly Gooly Watcha
Ging Gang Goo Ging Gang Goo.
Ging gang Gooly Gooly Gooly Gooly Watcha
Ging Gang Goo Ging Gang Goo.

Haila! Haila Shaila.. Haila Shaila.. Haila whooo
Haila! Haila Shaila.. Haila Shaila.. Haila whooo
Shallywally Shallywally Shallywally Shallywally.
Umpa Umpa Umpa Umpa.........

For me there is little else to be said...*giggle*
Happy When's Day,
Jude
